Computer Science Department

B.A., University of California, Berkeley

I have been teaching at CCSF since 2000.

I teach web programming and scripting languages, including Perl, PHP, and Ruby programming. My goal is to give motivated students the programming skills they need to reach their personal goals.

I also teach at the College of San Mateo, where I teach Ruby, Python, and HTML courses. http://smccd.edu/accounts/putnamd

In my professional career I have worked as a web consultant, and I've worked at several startups, most recently at YourVersion.com, where I was the lead PHP programmer.

Nancy J Webb

Computer Science Department

B. A., University of Maryland

Ms. Webb has been teaching at CCSF full-time since 1989 and part-time since 1985.

Competence with computers is required in most careers these days. To succeed in the world, students need to understand how modern technology is going to effect them, not only on the job, but in every facet of their lives. Master the computer through understanding and be in charge of your life! Everyone should understand computer and Internet basics. Online classes are fun to take and teach, and Ms. Webb is now teaching most of her classes online.

She is active in the Point Richmond Neighborhood Council, the Masquers Playhouse, and Phi Beta Kappa. Her hobbies are travel, reading, writing, anthropology, science fiction and enology.

She also likes to travel - interesting places like Egypt to see the antiquities; Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, India and others to see interesting cultures; and Central America for wildlife and beautiful beaches.
